Profile Information

What I do:
Arts and activism: Artivism
A little more about me:
I have experience as a theatre maker: acting, directing, producing, writing and dramaturgy. I hold a BA (hons) in Theatre and Performance Studies.

I'm looking to be part of artistic projects that do good for the community directly or indirectly. Issues that interest me include ecology, minority experience, activism, feminism and democracy.

I've worked as:
Creative Campaigns Assistant for Oxfam Cymru, organising street theatre and producing a short film to raise awareness of their international campaigns
Team Coordinator at Arts Council Wales, supporting staff to award public funds to arts projects, and coordinating the team of National Advisers
Assistant Director at Welsh National Opera, supporting Polly Graham on Welsh National Youth Opera's production Kommilitonen

I've recently returned to Wales from Hong Kong, where I have been working as a director, performer, educator and critic, for organisations including AFTEC, HKELD, and as a freelancer.

Projects I’m working on:
Recently I have been supporting the work of new innovative opera company Loud Crowd, and writing a libretto that explores history, identity and gender.
